As a parent, finding swimming lessons that are right for your child isn’t always easy. We understand how important it is to feel confident that your child is going to enjoy learning to swim in a safe but fun environment.
Here at Active Northumberland, we provide a well-established ‘Learn to Swim’ scheme offering kids swim lessons from Stage 1 through to 8 to help build your child’s water confidence.
Why choose to swim with us?
Here’s 9 top reasons why!
All children enrolled onto our Learn to Swim scheme receive FREE ‘Swim for All’ sessions at any of our pools.
These general swim sessions will give your child the opportunity to practice what they have learnt in their lessons...or simply splash around and have some fun!
Our friendly instructors will greet your child with a smile and a warm welcome, helping your child feel at ease during their lessons.
All our instructors are fully qualified having achieved their SEQ Level 2 Teaching Swimming Qualification.
We offer swim lessons at 9 of our centres across Northumberland from Ashington to Hexham!
Want to keep up with how your child is progressing in their lessons?
Our online portal will provide information on which skills your child has learned as well as the badges awarded.
All our centres offer viewing areas where you can watch your child progress in the water.
Fancy a cuppa while you watch? Enjoy a barista style coffee from our Hive Café’s, available at many of our centres.
All kids love getting their stage badges and certificates and it’s a proud parent moment too!
We provide FREE badges and certificates at every stage.
At only £7 per lesson, we feel our lessons are competitively priced and offer great value for money!
But don’t just take our word for it!
Here’s some positive feedback we received from a parent whose daughter recently completed Stage 8 of our Learn to Swim programme:
‘I would just like to say that Alyson the swimming instructor at Wentworth has been a fantastic teacher to my daughter. My daughter has had lessons with her for quite a while and has just completed Stage 8. She's so patient, engaging and clear whenever she instructs the children. My daughter has really enjoyed her time having Alyson as her instructor’
